A 2009 report by the Substance Abuse & Mental Health Services Administration shows that the states with the highest per capita drug use are: Alaska, Washington, Oregon, Montana, Colorado, Vermont, New Hampshire, Rhode Island. Go figure..... I imagine this must include illegal use of alcohol by kids and marijuana by socialites, but still it calls into question our preconceived notions about "poor" states, or southern border states.

My opinion, without explanation:
I think the drug treatment resources for the ABQ area are adequate, but for unknown reasons they just don't seem to be working. Do you count alcohol treatment resources in that group. We have a problem.

I do not think being adjacent to Mexico is a major problem.

We use to have the highest meth lab rate in NM, don't know our status now.

Espanola has a drug problem as already mentioned.
I read the paper daily, watch some local news, do some voluntary work and talk to some people... But there are those in a better position to actually observe the problems and issues.
